Pittsburgh, PA – Today, the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) releases a new, interactive web map allowing customers to search their neighborhood for past, present, and future infrastructure projects. The map includes water main, sewer, and green stormwater projects, as well as asphalt and concrete repair sites from construction work.
"The launch of this project map is another step in PWSA's commitment to transparency and investing in our infrastructure for the benefit of our communities,” said Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto. “It's important that our residents have an accessible resource to go to so they can understand the work happening in their neighborhood and how it relates to citywide goals for water systems and green infrastructure improvements."
This new and improved map provides a more interactive, easy-to-use interface and new features. The addition of surface restoration sites provides residents with an update on concrete and asphalt work for the first time in the Authority’s history. As crews complete locations in the field, their progress will be logged and the map will be updated with the newest information. This transparent approach allows customers to prepare for upcoming work or find out what is happening in their area.
How it Works
The new map is live and embedded on the Search all Projects page of PWSA's website. When the map is open, water, sewer, and stormwater projects are visible. To view asphalt and concrete locations, shown as grey diamonds - zoom into the map.
You can search for your address in the top left corner of the map, or simply view the different projects around the service area.
Users now have the option to toggle layers on the map by selecting “Layers List” – the middle button in the top right corner of the map. There, you can select and deselect categories of projects, like completed green infrastructure and restoration locations, or topographical layers like sewersheds and public parks.
“This new web map, along with our lead service line map are continuously updated, and demonstrate that your PWSA is committed to providing the public with accurate and useful information,” said PWSA Chief Executive Officer Will Pickering. “As the map shows, we’re improving an unprecedented amount of water infrastructure across our service area, and we will continue to do so for years to come,” he said.
